I'm not a mean comic, I don't want to turn anybody off – I just want to give a point of view or my take on things that everyone can laugh at.
Like I always tell people, I don't pander to any audience, but you have to play to your audience.
Then, when I got in the military, I used to host – even in high school – I hosted the talent shows, and when I was in the military I would host all of our base Christmas parties and stuff.
